Moving from on-premises applications to cloud applications, such as G Suite, is a big step to becoming a modern enterprise. However, without proper security measures in place, the use of cloud applications can lead to unintended data leakage that may be detrimental to an organization’s success. This is particularly true when it comes to an application like Google Drive, which is commonly used to store and share sensitive information. So, what is a modern enterprise to do?
Bitglass' cloud access security broker (CASB) protects against data leakage for Google’s apps and can enforce G Suite security best practices. This security solution can control how and where employees are accessing G Suite, as well as how information is shared – internally and externally. These CASB capabilities are critical for data loss prevention, because they enable admins to set up policies and have full visibility and control over who has access to their data in the cloud.
Depending on the policies that the administrator sets, access can be allowed or denied based on a number of factors, including device type, geolocation, and more. Bitglass’ CASB is also able to provide visibility into what sensitive data users are sharing within the applications, as well as detect sensitive data patterns and malware. These security capabilities are vital for modern organizations that are using cloud applications to store corporate information.
Using agentless reverse proxies and application programming interfaces (APIs), Bitglass is able to provide total G Suite security without needing to install software on each endpoint used to access data. Bitglass' unique ability to provide data security for any app, any device, anywhere is critical for enterprises that are utilizing G Suite as well as other cloud applications.
